Shreveport TV News Tidbits; Patrick Leaving KTAL, KSLA GM 'Retires'
A tipster has sent some good tidbits of news from the Shreveport Market.
> Shawn Patrick will be leaving ktal shortly after the february book. his hiring at denver's kusa was all over the web last week after it was announced internally there."
> The "retirement" last week of KSLA GM Ed Bradley, who is now the leading candidate in an announced mayoral field that also includes a senile, retired christmas tree salesman, may have an impact on the newsroom there over time. Main anchor Michelle White, who felt a strong loyalty to Bradley, has been exploring other possible opportunities and may be inclined to leave should an attractive one come up (maybe even in a new bradley administration, however far-fetched that proposition may seem). and Jayne Ruben, who bradley installed as news director after bob cashen left, could start to feel some pressure from new management should the numbers start to drop."
